Fetal response to maternal exercise

One of the main concerns related to exercise in pregnancy is the effect of maternal activity on the fetus, whereas any maternal benefits may be offset by adverse fetal outcomes. The potential concerns, although theoretical, are related to the selective redistribution of blood flow during exercise and the resultant effects on the transplacental transport of O2, CO2, and nutrients. Studies addressing fetal heart response to exercise have focused on fetal heart rate changes before, during, and after exercise. Moderate exercise appears to cause a minimal to moderate increase in fetal heart rate by approximately 10-30 beats/minute over baseline [62].
